Just finished a fabulous painting holiday in Wooler, we hired the house for the week and what can I say everything about it was perfect, food, accommodation which was plush beyond belief. We were really lucky with the weather and had fabulous days to paint out on location everyday which was of course in the most beautiful countryside in Northumberland. So successful in fact that I have already booked the place for next year.

I did a show the night before last at Biggleswade art society. It was a really good turnout, a good bunch of people and a real laugh. Id like to thank everybody for making me so welcome and turning out in mass.

I have just done a couple of fairly spectacular paintings for the RNLI once of which I am donating to the RNLI for fund raising, but before it goes it is being photographed for prints and greetings cards. I will keep you posted on these when they become available.

Been to lots of places since my last update, Dedham is Suffolk which was lovely weather and we managed to paint outside in glorious sunshine everyday and capture some of the fabulous villages and countryside of suffolk. I have bee to France 3 times this year, again been really lucky with the weather. All in all its been a fabulous summer this year. Lets hope it holds out for my final one which is in Wooler, Northumberland next month.

Some of our most popular workshops are based outdoors in and around our local area here in Northumberland.

The workshops are based in the studio which we use just in case the weather turns against us. With the weather on our side, we will travel out each day to paint locations such as Druridge Bay, Warkworth Castle, The River Coquet and various barns and little hideaways in the immediate area.
